Appreciation note… Take Home #116

You need not always be sure of the intention with which the appreciation note is written. As long as you take the appreciation for improving the fighting spirit towards the target, you are on right track. And the very moment an appreciation makes you get away from the focus, it’s nothing wrong with the appreciation note, rather it’s you who have ruined your own show.

Appreciation, in any form, by anyone, with any intention, can always be used for a good push; it’s up to the receiver who either makes or breaks his own attempt for a win.

I agree with you that one should not let the appreciation make one complacent but it should make him or her strive harder.

Take care

And those who appreciate need to keep in mind how to do it.

For example, I read this on Facebook under a new profile pic: "What a lovely pic! The photographer has done a great job."

That's the kind of back handed compliments people hand out to each other. Personally I think it is mean and low.
